An employer cannot unilaterally vary an employee’s contract without the permission of the employee. Nevertheless, should they vary it and the employee fails to register any objections, then the employee is deemed to have accepted the variation. Variations are defined as changes to the employee’s contract which are not provided for by the contract. Accordingly, should an employer attempt to vary the contract, it is essential that the employee lodge a formal objection immediately forthwith to prevent the employer from trying to maintain later on that the employee accepted it.
